Forum: GratefulDead Subject: has anybody?

Michael Kelly with his sweetheart came from County Cork
And bent upon a holiday they landed in New York
They strolled around to see the sights, alas, it’s sad to say
Poor Kelly lost his little girl along the Great White Way
She walked uptown from Herald Square to Forty-Second Street
The traffic stopped as she cried to the copper on the beat––


Has anybody here seen Kelly?
K-E-double L-Y
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Have you seen him smile?
Sure, his hair is red, his eyes are blue,
And he’s Irish through and through!
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Kelly from the Emerald Isle!


Over on Fifth Avenue a band began to play
A thousand men were marching for it was St. Patrick’s Day
The ‘Wearing of the Green’ rang out upon the morning air
‘Twas Kelly’s favorite song so Mary said, “I’ll find him there!”
She climbed upon the bandstand in hopes her Mike she’d see
Five hundred Kellys left the ranks in answer to her plea!


Has anybody here seen Kelly?
K-E-double L-Y
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Kelly passing by?
Sure, his hair is red, his eyes are blue,
And he’s Irish through and through
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Kelly from the Emerald Isle! (Kelly with the green neck-tie!)
